Child’s Play In The Park – by Chris Parapia

vcm_s_kf_m160_160x120Twenty five children, their parents and carers, enjoyed a mostly dry and sunny afternoon in Parkinson’s Park on Thursday 31st July 2014.  The event was part of a series of mobile play sessions throughout Aireborough organised by Leeds Play Network in collaboration with Aireborough Extended Services.

The session in the park included arts and crafts, parachute games and den building. Let’s hope this can become a regular annual event for local children. Many parents said they had never been in the park before, and some were new residents from the Edison Fields and Redrow estates.

The sessions run throughout the school holiday and are free; you can just turn up. For further information about these sessions which are continuing in the area till 21st August contact
